Pray for LIFE
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I dedicated you,
a prophet to the nations I appointed you.
Jeremiah 1:5

From the Desk of the Director
Today was supposed to be the March For Life, both the local one in Mobile and the national one in Washington DC. Sadly, the marches are not taking place in the usual form. There are virtual ways to participate this year, but the coming together as a large, visual pro-life statement will have to wait. Even more concerning is that on Friday, President Biden is rumored to be discontinuing the Mexico City policy that prevents US tax dollars from supporting abortions around the globe. We have made great strides since the 1970’s in bringing to light this genocide of the unborn. Surveys show now, more than ever, that a majority of people see abortion for what it is; the killing of a human being. However, a vocal and powerful portion of people will do whatever it takes to keep the killing going. Pray today for young women facing this choice. Pray for President Biden that he will not sign this executive order on such an anniversary. Pray for all those on the front lines that they may speak with clear, loving voices on this issue. Pray for mercy from God for all we have done in the name of free choice.
 
We can and do make a difference. Look how far we’ve come. Like the workmen that constructed the great cathedrals of the world, they just laid it brick by brick. Most would never see it completed in their lifetime. We do the same here. God knows the plan, we will just do our part.
 
May you have a joyful and blessed week with the ones you love.

LA Catholic Morning!

Live from the Command Center
This week is certainly heartfelt for me because 7 years ago, I was in our nation's capitol covering the March for Life as a reporter for EWTN. Just being with the joy filled crowd of over hundreds of thousands of all ages, gave me hope for the future of the Church and reminded me of how EXTREMELY blessed I am to have 3 beautiful children of my own. Speaking of blessings, we are blessed to have another great line up of guests on LA Catholic Morning next week. Rob Artigo, who was out sick last week, will be with us on Monday to share about the beautiful history of the Crystal Cathedral in California. Vocations director for the Archdiocese, Fr Victor Ingalls joins us on Tuesday to give us a seminarian update. We'll hear a preview of Ellen Taylor and Michele McAloon's Convergence interview with Richard Baris from Daily Pundit about election integrity, on Wednesday, and on Thursday, Gary Zimak shares why we should consider giving up worry for Lent.

May God abundantly bless all of our listeners and PLEASE don't forget to call your Mama! She loves you!
